Nellie Blackman married first to John A Bailey and with him she had three children, all born in Bradford Co: Harry Clay Bailey, born 20 March 1897 at Hornbrook; Evangeline Bailey, born 24 March 1898 at Springfield; and Eva Bailey, born 4 October 1899 at Springfield. After John died, she married Percy Adelbert Merrill on 15 September 1909, probably in Bradford Co since they had two children born there: Harold L Merrill, born 22 April 1911; and Donald E Merrill, born 23 Mar 1917. Percy died in the late 1910s and Nellie then lived at at Waverly, Tioga Co NY in 1920 with all her children other than Evangeline.

Old Pioneer Family has many Descendants in this Section
Edward Hackett was a Sergeant in the Revolutionary war. He served in Capt. Abiel Pierce's company of Minute Men, of which the following history is on file in the secretary's office at Boston, Mass. The first three companies that entered the revolutionary war were organized at Freetown, and Middleborough, Mass., right under the nose of the British, Col. Gilbert. The organization was called Minute Men, and were to enter the war at a moment's notice, either by day or night and was led by Captain Abiel Pierce and was the first company to enter the Revolutionary war and participated in the battles of Lexington and Concord.
Edward Hackett later served in the Ninth Regiment of the Albany Militia. After the war, in 1798, he and his son-in-law Seth Booth were pioneer settlers at Locke, Cayuga county, NY. They cleared land and built cabins and six months later sent to Freetown, Mass., for their families, who traveled with ox teams from Freetown to Locke, which required two weeks. This was the only means of transportation at that period.
Edward Hackett received a pension annually of $66.66. He had 13 children. Some remained in Massachusetts, others settled in New York, and five of his children were pioneer settlers in Chatham and Clymer townships, Tioga county.
Hundreds of Edward Hackett's descendants reside in Tioga, Bradford, Potter and Lycoming counties. Mrs. George Knapp of Snedekerville, Bradford county, is the secretary and treasurer of the Hackett reunion. 
Cole Family Records
Many Served in Revolutionary
War—Isaiah Cole an Early Tioga County Settler.
Buckport, Maine, March 15,
1934._Editor Wellsboro Agitator; Dear Sir: I send you the records of the famous Cole family who were among the early settlers of Tioga county. This statement has been denied by a few people, but these records are intact and reliable in every detail from history pages as well as family bible
records. Isaiah Cole settled on the Tioga River near my mother's present home on the Smith farm in Tioga, Pa. The ruins are still there. Isaiah Cole was given an English land grant of five thousand acres and the Dutch and Indians claimed it was theirs and ran Cole out, and he built his second cabin where St. Mary's church stands today in Corning, N. Y. He was the father of 16 children and my great-grandfather, Venus Cole, was one of them.  Inclosed you will find the Revolutionary war records of some of these Coles, our family as well as the ones in Steuben and Tioga Counties, N. Y. and Pennsylvania. You will find 12 generations also.  There may be of interest in Tioga county and you may publish them.  We are not ashamed of the Cole family. There are statesmen, doctors, lawyers, judges among them, and they are Americans, every one. The 12 generations are listed by Delia Cole Williamson Good and are correct since 1633—William, Kingston, Henry, William, Isaiah, James, Tunis, Ezikiel, John, James, Sarah Anne Cole, Delia Cole Williamson Good.  I hope these records will end a dispute about the Cole family records.—Joseph A. Warren, StaRoute, Bucksport, Maine.  Official Revolutionary war records compiled by Elias Stockton; recorded by Wr. Stryker, Adjutant General—
Aaron Cole, Capt. Martin’s Co.; 4th Battalion; Abram Cole, Spencer’s Regiment, Continental Army; Abram Cole, 3rd Regt., Continental Army; Andrew Cole, 2nd Battalion, Continental; Benjamin Cole, Lamb’s Artillery, 2nd Regt., Continental Army; Henry Cole, 1st Batt. Second Establishment; John Cole, Spencer’s Regt., Cont. Army; Richard Cole, 3rd Batt., Cont. Army; Isaiah Cole, Captain, 2nd Regt., Sussex; Daniel Cole, sergeant artillery, Continental Army; Aaron Cole, Essex, Artillery, Cont. Army.  Enlistments in Continental Army – Abram, Joseph, Daniel, Henry, James, John, Morris Cole, of Essex, N.J.; Samuel of Bergen County, N.J.; Samuel of Sussex County, N.J.; William, First Regiment, died March 15, 1778, while a prisoner.
